    When you go to your fitting, just bring a pair of heels that are the same height that your undiscovered dream shoes will be so that they can tack the dress for hemming to the correct length.

    Keep on searching – just because you have to start alterations doesn’t mean you have to settle on a shoe that you don’t love!

    Your last poll choice cracked me up. I would hold out and keep searching. PP’s suggestion is very good.

    MsMindle is right – they only want you to have the shoes for height purposes Smile Also, not many people will be looking at your shoes (they’ll probably be covered by the dress), so don’t get too stressed about finding matching shoes if they don’t exist. Stick with it! I’m sure you’ll find the ones you want to wear.

    I know exactly the feeling…. After 2 foot surgeries and perrenial stress fractures in my foot, I am not about to wear any high heels.  But I feel like all the bridal shoes out there are heels! 

    I’m leaning towards flip flops 😛

    It took me ages to find my shoes.  I think it was harder than finding the dress.

    Keep looking – I ended up finding mine on endless.com (after ordering and returning like 10 pairs).

    Oooh, ooh, I had to share because I just finally found a pair of shoes to go with my ivory lace dress… Well, that is, I found them on Pinterest… I have yet to try them on.

    Here they are:

    They’re by Something Bleu and are called Crackle in Lace. They come in ivory!

    Sorry, I’m just excited because I’m like you; I can never find shoes I like.

    sounds like you want a short heel that is closed toe. exactly what i wanted.

    what i’m doing is buying dance shoes and i’m going to decorate them myself. i haven’t decided on glitter, strassing, or mod podging little pieces of paper from harry potter novels…

    Yes, look outside the “bridal shoe” label, for sure. There is no need to limit yourself to such a narrow and expensive set of choices!

    It may be tricky to find ivory lace shoes if you’re not looking explicitly at bridal shoes – but try it, you never know what you might find. And keep your mind open about other shoes (leather, etc.) in ivory/cream/off white/bone, or nude, or gold, etc.

    Good luck in your search!

    my mom found mine!! I really wanted blue shoes! she got them at a J Crew outlet and they were perfect and on sale for $30

    I was having a REALLY hard time finding the perfect blue shoe, I went everwhere and Im glad I did not give up and settle!!!  I put everyone on a mission to find the perfect blue shoe, just to look whenever they were out and about, my mom texted me a picture and I was like, perfect bring them home if they dont fit we will resell on ebay and continue the search!!!

    Good Luck

    I voted for 3 – just because it’s the funniest reponse I have ever seen it cracked me up.

    Seriously though, go to your fitting in the heel height of your desired shoes then your hem line will be ok.

    @rosworms:  I love them, they would be my perfect shoe if the heel was smaller.

    @Future Mrs K Oooh I love those shoes. Such a lovely shade of blue.

    @Edelweiss Don’t give up hope. You still have 2 months to go. I actually got mine from Light in the Box, they’ve got some nice designs (plus I wasn’t exactly looking for bridally shoes. I wanted something I could wear again)
